Forgive me if this goes wrong...but I figure I should stop moaning and do something about this...

Day 17

Mondays reminders

So what time are you going to bed tonight????

Newbies...keep you sink shiney, get dressed to you shoes and do a 2 min hotspot


With that I think I will quit while I am ahead and go and get dressed for work

Hello FLYbabies - JAS has sent me a text to tell me her broadband is dead shock

I'm meant to be keeping an eye on you lot (I think this is her way of getting me to start again hmm)

Hi everyone

BigBearistheBigBear Mon 10-Sep-07 08:20:28

Oh, I am impressed SMS. Well done grin.

DH is always tired by 10 and wants to be in bed at 10.30 at the latest. I only really start waking up about 7pm and the last thing I want to do is go to bed early. So I end up barely able to crawl out of bed in the mornings. The DDs are awake from about 6.15, tho I can generelly more or less ignore them till 7 wink.

Supposed I should set my bed time for 10.30. Maybe I'd get more hot lovin' that way grin.

BigBearistheBigBear Mon 10-Sep-07 08:22:15

Today I must bless my home in fifteen of seventy-five ways. (But I can't be arsed.)

FunkyGlassSlipper Mon 10-Sep-07 08:41:43

Back now. Chaos here as we all got up late...

Morning routine for those who want to follow:

Morning routine
1. Make bed
2. Swish & Swipe bathroom
3. Put a washload in
4. Empty dishwasher
5. DRINK SOME WATER
6. Clear away breakfast things
7. Think about what you want for dinner - take out meat if necessary.
8. 2 minute hotspot

For new flybabies start as slowly as you need. You'll catch up in no time. This list looks long but it takes about 20 minutes.

Back again (and talking to myself??)

I had a cup of tea instead of water

I've done 5 minutes in DD1 room. She had got every single teddy she owned and lined them up on window sills, shelves etc so now they are all back in her teddy box. And I did 2 minutes in DD2s room getting rid of some of my things from there. Also hoovered upstairs.

That is me done for the day tbh until it is time for bedtime routine. I'll collect DD1 from pre-school at 12 and then try and think of something fun we can do....

Bigmuthaclaire Mon 10-Sep-07 17:29:14

Hi everyone. I was so happy to see so many people following the FLYlady system on here! I've been flying for a few months now and really feel the benefits. Its also given me a new perspective on housework by seeing it as "blessing my family" instead of just stuff i have to do.

How has FLYing inpacted your lives?

BigBearistheBigBear Mon 10-Sep-07 17:29:32

Slightlymadsweden - I didnt notice you'd missed the link but as I have an integral fridge I cant do this one

Had a good day. Nothing done since this mornings posts but feel on top of things.

Know what is for dinner when DH comes home. Kids currently eating dinner. Will start evening routine later.

Bigmuthaclaire - FLYLADY helps me feel more organised and I know there is a way out when houework gets so dull and on top of me.

Bigbear - that is some list to get through....

winemakesmummyclever Mon 10-Sep-07 18:50:02

Hi folks,

Have had a busy day as trying to get the house & ds's meals & clothes ready for the next week, as my mum is looking after him while we're away. Bless her, she doesn't know what she's let herself in for grin. I've left her notes on my routine so she can keep up the good work.

Will pack tomorrow, so can relax tonight & recover from the trauma of taking my mum to the supermarket.

Off for a glass of red, a bath & an early night.

See you guys in a week. Happy Flying smile.

winemakesmummyclever Mon 10-Sep-07 18:54:07

But before I go, can I just say :

Bear - wow! grin
